Allergy and Immunology

Allergies including asthma are among the most common health problems. Immuno-deficiencies are rarer but can be chronic and debilitating if not diagnosed and treated properly. If you or your child have an allergic disease or a defect in the immune system, our Allergy and Immunology Division provides optimal and tailored care for children and adults with a wide range of allergic and immunologic conditions.

The Allergy and Immunology Division at American Hospital Dubai provides cutting-edge, evidence-based care to identify and treat all allergic and immunological diseases. Our board-certified Allergists and Immunologists make use of the latest diagnostic testing to devise personalized treatment plans that effectively enable the patient to manage their allergic and immunologic disorders.
